Gore and IPCC Win the Nobel Peace Prize

This is a great victory for environmental justice movements, but what about my needs? I’m teaching the book version of An Inconvenient Truth later in the semester, and now I wonder how difficult it will be to generate critical analysis of the argument after the Nobel imprimatur has been given.

Fortunately for teachers everywhere, a British court recently ruled that Gore’s apocalypticism is politically partisan and not motivated by the facts alone. (Yes, Virginia, we call that rhetoric.) Don’t worry, Al, Rachel Carson still loves ya!
